We are new to cooking with tofu. Love the ease of it. Good spice.

This was very good and I didn't even have all of the ingredients. I had to substitute dried cilantro for fresh and granulated garlic for fresh garlic. Can't wait to try it with the fresh ingredients! I used about 3/4 of the coconut milk just cause I like a bit more sauce. Excellent, will make again.

This was very good!! I left the tofu/vegetables in when adding the coconut milk for flavor (I used almond milk). I also doubled the seasoning/curry powder/garlic. Instead of salt I used garlic salt seasoning. I mixed part rice/part couscous for variety. I also definitely had more than one serving...

Love this recipe! I added a few mushrooms, chick peas, a little siracha and ate it w brown basmati rice. It was delicious. I can't wait to have it again!

Love this recipe, has become a staple. I usually add a can of chickpeas and cut the rice in half to add more protein & they go great with the curry flavor. I've never cooked with coconut milk prior to this, so was concerned, but it is sooooo good!

I added mushrooms and more garlic, a little salty, I'll use less next time. Its much better than the usual tofu sandwhiches I make.
